[movies]MIT 21H.931 Seminar in Historical Methods, Spring 2004 - MIT OpenCourseWare
Instructor: Prof. Anne McCants This course is designed to acquaint students with a variety of approaches to the past used by historians writing in the twentieth century. The books we read have all made significant contributions to their respective sub-fields and have been selected to give as wide a coverage in both field and methodology as possible in one semester's worth of reading. We examine how historians conceive of their object of study, how they use primary sources as a basis for their ac...
